Frequently Asked Questions

Can’t find the answer you’re looking for? Here are some of our most frequently asked questions about Mimeo Print and answers from our expert team.

Print on demand (POD) is a type of order fulfillment where documents are printed only when, and as soon as, an order is placed. With POD technology, you can print in single or small quantities, rather than pre-printing materials in bulk. There are no minimum order requirements. The main benefit of POD is the ability to print the exact number of documents you need, when you need them, reducing costs and eliminating waste from unused, excess documents. In addition, POD lets you personalise documents via variable data printing (VDP). VDP allows for customisation of elements, such as text, graphics, and images, from one printed piece to the next.

Mimeo Print is an online, on-demand print platform that allows you to build, proof, and print as much or as little as you want at any given time. There are no minimum print order requirements. Customers can order printed documents from any device, anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Mimeo Print includes an online document library, where you can securely store the documents you build for future access.

Every Mimeo Print order is unique, produced on-demand through a defined production process. Mimeo’s production facilities work in conjunction with on-demand orders, by only producing orders in the quantity needed at the time needed. This helps us to levelise our production, eliminate the need for inventory, and reduce document waste.

Employees are only granted access to those tools required to complete the tasks assigned to them. The Mimeo production process is managed by sophisticated, computerised systems that govern all access control and task allocation to fully prevent any unnecessary access.

Each time a file is uploaded to Mimeo, a unique certificate is automatically assigned to the user. The file can only be decrypted by Mimeo during the transfer of this data. A secure protocol (HTTPS) and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) are utilised within all of Mimeo’s platforms. These are the same encrypted document transfer technologies utilised by financial and retail institutions. Numerous financial services companies in the Fortune 100 entrust Mimeo to secure their documents.

Mimeo not only enables sites to have their own file repository, we also provide users with a robust content library. This includes the ability to securely store, save, and share documents through their individual content libraries. Additional sharing permissions can be set for documents, such as read-only, customise, or full control. Our customers often organise their libraries, permissioning access to the most current folders of their content. Outdated content can be removed or archived, organisation wide from a single account, eliminating any room for error in terms of version control.

You can upload PDF files.

Mimeo Print’s online proof will show you what your document will look like. If your content isn’t quite fitting with the folds or cutlines of a document, we provide free templates for download. These templates give you guidelines and dimensions for your content layout in either PDF or Microsoft Word format.
